What is the Ask AI app? It is a smartphone app that provides you with a versatile AI assistant. Ask AI is not your run-off-the-mill AI assistant, as it has many cool features - all offering convenience.

Let's start with the basic features. Like other AI Chatbots, you can make this app write for you or answer your questions through prompts. But that is not all. On its home screen, you will see several categories under "Suggestions." Under each category are custom prompts you can click to generate text or ask questions. For example, you can click "Tell me a joke" under "Fun" to quickly generate a joke - little to no typing is required.

But, of course, the star of the show is Ask AI's Elite Tools. These tools allow you to summarize a YouTube video, website, or article. They also let you find answers from a YouTube video, file, or the internet. Also, there's a "Santa AI" tool that suggests gifts for your loved ones.

Overall, Ask AI is an impressive AI Chatbot for your Android phone. Subscribing is money well spent.

Part 2. Difference Between Ask AI App and ChatGPT App

Unsurprisingly, ChatGPT powers the Ask AI app. But here is the thing. ChatGPT is also available as an Android app. So, what is the difference between the two apps?

The answer is simple. ChatGPT is very simple. It accepts voice and text inputs. You can use it to generate text or answer your questions. But that's about it. The ChatGPT app lacks the web connectivity that Ask AI has. It also can't summarize a YouTube video or analyze a document.

However, ChatGPT has a free version, so it's still a great tool for people who don't want to spend.
